History of the United States
by Charles A. Beard, Mary R. Beard
Publisher: The MacMillan Company 1921
Number of pages: 712
This is a high school textbook in American history. The authors tried to set forth the important aspects, problems, and movements of each period, bringing in the narrative by way of illustration. Emphasized are those historical topics which help to explain how our nation has come to be what it is today. Treated are the causes and results of wars, the problems of financing and sustaining armed forces, rather than military strategy. Special attention was given to the history of those current questions which must form the subject matter of sound instruction in citizenship. Full of illustrations, maps, portraits, paintings and photographs.

This book recounts how African-American slaves and their descendants struggled to win the civil rights enjoyed by other Americans. It is a story of dignified persistence and struggle, a story that produced great heroes and heroines.
